    I have a model 1894 Swedish Mauser that a member on this board has agreed to purchase. He lives in North Carolina, I live in Connecticut. My brother, purely by chance, lives in the same city in North Carolina. I understand that the rifle must be transfered through an FFL in North Carolina and that the normal means to get it there is through UPS, FEDEX, etc. My question is this: Can my brother, who will be visiting Connecticut in the next few weeks take the rifle with him back down to North Carolina, meet the buyer at his FFL, and do the transfer?

    Yes. Your brother, being an FFL, can take the rifle from you, transport it into North Carolina and do the transfer to the buyer there.

    You can also mail (USPS) or ship (FEDEX or UPS) rifles to him.

    Your rifle may be an antique, and does not have to go through an FFL at all.

    Firearms manufactured before 1899 are considered antiques for this purpose.

    Yea thats what I was thinking too. Do you know the date of manufacture of your rifle? It its before 1899, you dont need an FFL.

    BATFE regs are stickied at the top of the Legal Forum page.

    I haven't checked, but I don't believe that the means of conveyance--to the FFL who will handle the actual transfer--is not a specified requirement. I.e., it's not mandatory that you use the USPS or UPS.
